June 2013 Meeting


Double trouble - clarity on test doubles by Greg Sterndale

You're a member of the Ruby community, you've heard the questions. Seen the confusion. Smelled the code. You've probably scratched your head while someone struggled to differentiate mocks and stubs. Maybe you've seen test doubles overused or test suites begging for them. Heck, maybe it's your suite. Perhaps your team struggles for the right words when talking about test phases, elements and patterns. You've heard of patterns like fakes, spies and dummies, but you're not sure what they're all about.

Using an accepted, conventional unit test vocabulary, this talk defines a number of test double patterns, weighing the pros & cons of each and exploring possible applications. You should see it.
